Jeff Duncan on Trump Bills Signed so far

From Jeff’s FB page:

Congress has passed and the President has signed 14 bills that rescind major Obama era regulations. Regulations that significantly overreach on federal authority, hurt jobs, and run afoul of the Constitution. Here’s an overview of what we’ve done:

Improve American Energy

The Stream Buffer Rule (H.J. Res. 38) would have saddled mines with unnecessary regulations, putting up to 64% of America’s coal reserves off limits and threatening between 40,000 to 70,000 mining jobs.
